Weekly Dose of Braille

The Weekly Dose of Braille gives you a taste of braille examples that may be used in worksheets or textbook formatting.  This insightful Weekly Dose of Braille brings your attention to the common use of Unified English Braille and how to implement these rules and formats used by braille transcribers and proofreaders. It is a miscellaneous mixture of tricky, sometimes challenging circumstances, that a braille transcriber may come across or question, but are neatly put into a Weekly Dose of Braille for your easy access. Your questions and feedback are important. Along with a downloadable PDF file, a brf file can also be made available for your convenience. Please feel free to ask or share your braille question by contacting Denise Bean at denise.bean@blind.state.ia.us.

All of us can benefit from one another’s braille skills and experience. We are always better when working together! Our goal, as braille transcribers and proofreaders, must be to envelop and embrace the knowledge of proper format and rules so that each blind person will receive the best quality of braille.

The members of our Braille Instructional Materials Center team are all certified braille transcribers. Please feel free to contact any of us with any braille questions.
